Use of extractive pectolytic enzymes, destemming and pressing after an hour. Cooled to 15ºC, the must is then vacuum filtered with perlites. The fermentation is achieved through active dry yeasts, the temperature being controlled between 16ºC and 18ºC.
A dry wine of real finesse. Aromas are a wonderful combination of ripe orchard fruits. The body is full with a delicious, creamy character and this is countered by a fresh, citrus quality on a long finish.
Excellent with or without food, particularly recommended with fish, white meat and any light flavoured dishes.
